What is the purpose behind everything we do as a church family?
Fulfillment of the “Great Commission!”
Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
Honestly, it is unrealistic to think that any one follower of Christ could accomplish this. No single church can complete the task. It is possible, however, when each and every follower of Christ does all that he or she can do in fulfillment of our shared assignment.
Questions to Ask Yourself
- Are you personally engaged in the effort?
- Is the assignment even important to you?
The Bible, in Romans 12 and 1 Corinthians 12, reveals that you and I are uniquely gifted to ensure successful fulfillment of the “Great Commission.” When you or I fail to serve, others have to step in and do a job they were not created for.
- What is the one thing each of us need to do in order to fulfill the commission Jesus gave? What one thing today?
- What one thing this week?
- What one thing this month What one thing this year?
That will be our focus this Sunday morning in both worship services.
